You have enough experience to do a tutorial; the first year we had full
Python intro tutorial it was done by a college student.
If you want to submit a proposal for a talk or tutorial just go to the
pyohio cfp link http://pyohio.org/call-for-proposals/ and submit a
proposal. If you are unsure how to write a proposal, contact me offline at
brian.costlow at gmail.com
We'll be getting a sign-up for volunteers in general soon. The call for
help with the kids' class was a special case, as we need a fair amount of
help and wanted to get a jump.
Join the organizers list, if you haven't yet.
We'll be directing a lot of calls for he;p there as we get closer.
